    Rage Against The Machine's Zack de la Rocha has released a new solo track, it's called "Digging for Windows" and it's available as a free download on the artist's soundcloud page. (see below)

    The single is produced by Run the Jewels' El-P and features Matt Sweeney on guitar and Nick Hook on keys. This is perhaps the most promising release from Zack de la Rocha, who has been working, and aborting solo projects for the past twenty years. In an interview back in 2011 Trent Reznor explained that he had also worked on de la Rocha music which had been aborted because "it sounded too much like Rage Against The Machine." However, El-P has tweeted that the new single is the first music from a new album from de la Rocha that will be released in 2017.

    De la Rocha's bandmates from Rage Against The Machine have been busy with their own project. The Prophets Of Rage, which also features Chuck D and members of Cypress Hill, have released new material and have been on tour through the USA, representing a counterpoint to the current political campaigns run by Clinton and Trump. The band is promising to "Make America Rage Again."

    Zack De La Rocha "Digging For Windows"

    f*** that bright s***
    the spot or the flashlights
    we in la ducking both
    in the shadows with lead pipes
    the days are all night

    see if i pay edison
    no medicine
    these blues ain't more better when
    my fever rise in the jungle
    as quick as the price spikes
    the days are all night

    my future snapped like a rubber band
    off my fold on a hand to hand
    he drew from his waist
    i put two in his roof
    and i can still hear his screams
    all night

    now they ride their portfolios
    like rodeos
    rise every time my cherry glows
    on the end of my cig as
    the smoke blows through the bars
    and the co's laugh fades
    as he strolls away
    says i gotta pay
    off that roll away
    or its f*** your visitation days
    and i pop off so in solitaire
    i dream of offing these fred astaires
    and the skin off my fingers tear
    we digging for windows here
    where the days are all night

    this city's a trap my partner
    under the lights of they choppers
    bodies tools for they coffers
    not worth the cost of our coffins
    i stare at a future so toxic
    no trust in the dust of a promise
    won't mark the name on a ballot
    so they can be free to devour our options
    and just like you I'm a target
    ill defined by the guap in my pocket
    but the stage make figures
    as quick as it off em
    what marley and pac get?
    i put these caps in capitals
    leave minds blazed in they capitols
    i step with a fury so actual fact
    that my offense could be capital

    we digging for windows here
